it was a historic moment. the star of the mexican film roma was nominated for best actress at this year's academy awards it was the first time an indigenous woman was in the running was but despite international recognition not everyone back in mexico celebrated yelitza success. mexico's largest t.v. channel ran a parody of roma many accused the light skinned actress for mocking the elites with her brown face makeup and a percentage in those moments a year or two other mexican personalities attacked the indigenous actress on social media with racist comments was one of the guys award winning actor to not shweta says roles for dark skin actors in mexico are limited. well i meant that people like me can only play characters who are messed up or who are thieves where the delinquents which is funny because eighty percent of the population are mixed race your skin pigment still determines your social status and
cultural level the darker your skin the more ignorant you are it's a narrative that's been around for five hundred years. some critics say popular characters like. helped to perpetuate stereotypes about mexico's indigenous population. of the patrol of indigenous people is that they're kind of like children who've not developed their abilities who still haven't adapted to modern life the poor very lazy and don't produce anything worthwhile they have become a caricature in the media. but thanks to actors like to note. ordinary mexicans are finally able to see people like themselves represented on screen. i was eating tacos one time at a young guy selling cookies came up to me and said it's you the one in the movies and he hugged me and started crying and told me how awesome it was that someone with dark skin that looked like him to get all the girls and all that this gave me
the feeling that we can change things but while diversity in mexican film and television is slowly increasing on the streets far less seems to have changed advertisements seen by millions every day show people who are predominately tall thin and light skinned. this lack of representation leaves out the majority of mexicans who until recently had little chance of seeing lives like theirs played out on the big screen david mercer al-jazeera mexico city. we have the sports news still ahead on the news out of the sky's the limit for a ten year old skateboarder looking to become one of the youngest olympian to touch a twenty twenty that's coming up on.
that's. thank you very much bangladesh's cricket team narrowly escaped the christ church mosque in new zealand the team had just arrived at the school friday praise when the hood gunshots the team stayed on the bus and later made their way through a. cricket ground against new zealand which had been. there on saturday has now been cancelled. when i mean. we're not here i'm thankful we're very lucky because we were not inside that place we sort from outside like watching a video like in the movies we saw many people coming out bloodied we were in the bus for about eight to ten minutes we had our heads down in the bus just in case
there was firing. the president of the bangladesh cricket board has criticized the security surrounding the country's team so it is not only. india or pakistan is at the height is any this can happen anywhere in the world this what we have been seeing incidents as proof of that and that is why we feel that the security that countries like bangladesh give to other teams when they come to play in bangladesh we should also get the similar type of security arrangement or support from the host country one of new zealand's most famous sportsman rugby player sonny boll williams who is also a muslim tweeted this video after the shootings. just just. to your loved ones you guys all in paradise and. yeah i'm just. deeply deeply saddened saddened that this will happen in new zealand
a meeting of football's wooll the governing body has stopped short of approving a plan for carter to share the twenty twenty two world cup with its neighbors fever president giani unfun tino wants to expand the world cup from thirty two teams to forty eight in time for twenty twenty two and put he's planned to the fee for council in miami on friday it would require a concert to share it with neighboring countries probably amman and kuwait because it's currently being blockaded by saudi arabia the u.a.e. bahrain and egypt in from tina said that the question would now go to the full fee for congress meeting in june. well we are looking into the matter and seeing whether it's possible it is feasible to anticipate this already pointed to if it is feasible if it is possible great if it is not feasible if it is not possible great but it's not. as easy as that you cannot just take a simple decision you have to analyze these matters very carefully and we are
working very closely with qatar to see what proposals can be made when this clear is that if we were to increase to forty teams and we will decide this in june . then some games would have to be hosted by some neighboring countries of qatar and we together with our partners from qatar will present. eventually proposal these. in this. respect our correspondent emma gallagher has been at the press conference in miami andy what do you read between the lines of what inventing a say. well i think that one clip you played kind of sums it up if it happens fantastic if it doesn't funtastic that's the kind of game he's playing right now he's being very neutral he didn't talk about which particular neighbors of qatar might be hosting those extra sixteen
nations and he did talk about the fact that sport is something that could bridge political gaps that could repair damaged relationships and of course that's where things get complicated because with saudi arabia bahrain and u.a.e. there is a blockade against qatar so that's a difficult situation and then when you look at them on cue weight the really isn't much facilities there but it's clear that in fact he knows vision is for the world cup possibly in twenty twenty to insert it going forward from that will be an expanded world cup and part i think to be more include. given in part also to make more money what he also said is that the qatari officials according to him frontin are all cooperating are looking at this as an option but any final decision will not be made until june when fifa meets again in paris and the wind is inference he knows so badly want to expand the world cup for twenty twenty two.
well i think in part he did talk about that a little bit because there is some concern i guess amongst hardcore football fans that it might dilute the quality of the world cup and he talked about what happened in the last world cup when croatia reached the final he talked about it being more inclusive potentially more exciting and of course then there's the business side of it he said that any expansion in the twenty twenty two world cup could raise between an extra three to four hundred million dollars so there is that business side of it there is from his point of view that inclusive of the side then i think this is definitely a fee for president's vision for things going forward it will happen in two thousand and twenty six when the world cup will be hosted by canada the u.s. and mexico and whether that can be done in twenty twenty two and potentially taking away the entire exclusivity from the host nation qatar or any just a bit of a crystal ball question as you say fief it will be having that meeting in june to make a decision doesn't look like in france you know will get his wish. i
mean that's a very difficult question to answer because it isn't just solely his decision as to go to the council they will make the final decision and of course he has made it pretty clear that qatar will be involved in any ultimate decision it seems that all parties are open to talking about just about anything at the moment but what happens in june in paris while your guess is as good as mine i think that it's the end of gallagher thank you so much for being there in miami for us covering their fee for a news conference looking to expand the world cup to forty eight hundred twenty twenty two what the fever council did approve in fenty knows playing for twenty fourteen club world cup from twenty twenty one on woods something european teams have said bay will boycott it came just as the draw for the european champions league quarter finals was made on friday i.x. and you ventus will meet in a repeat of the ninety ninety six final another repeat of a final takes place when barcelona and manchester united do battle they faced each other in two thousand and nine and again in twenty eleven before play porter and
taught them take on man city in an all english affair who reached last year's final but have yet to win any trophy under their manager you're going to up and he says he will be leaving criticism of his record get to him my job is to do everything i can. do to help the team that we can be as successful as possible and not i'm not searching for being remembered in fifty years or whatever people scream at me please don't. do that if i'm not interested in the avid interest which actually got chucked me one day and that's what the only the only thing i'm interested in that other people say about me i could be less interested in the europa league arsenal will play not only in the quarter finals the gunners produced a stunning comeback and some i catching celebrations against french team are in the last sixteen three one down from the first leg they won three nil on thursday night america bombing young school two and celebrated by wearing
a mask from the black panther movie. the mercedes seemed have started the opening grand prix weekend by posting the fastest times in friday practice it was a tough day for many competitors who struggled to get to grips with the albert park track in melbourne including ferrari's shown the clerk the safety valve theory potus also had a stand but he ended up posting the second fastest time just behind teammate and five time world champion lewis hamilton. rugby six nations championship will be decided on saturday with three teams still capable of winning the title in the final round of matches in cardiff wales will host ireland the welsh have won all their matches so far and are on a hot streak of thirteen straight wins but a win for ireland could see them win the title that is unless england then go on to beat scotland. this is the cliche it's a privilege and one of the finest. to.

a similar attack on worshippers at lynnwood mosque about ten minutes away police have arrested a number of suspects including an australian born man new zealand's prime minister said they weren't on security watch lists. that new zealand had been the target of what she described as a terrorist attack because it was a diverse nation that welcomed migrants we new zealand. we were not to tag it because we are a safe harbor for those who hate. we were not true isn't for the sake of violence because we can darn racism because we're an on clay for extremism. we were chosen for the very facts that we are and none of these things australia's prime minister is also appalled and shocked we stand here and condemn absolutely the tact that occurred today by an extremist right wing violent terrorist. that is typed in the logs stolen the logs in
a vicious murder suspect that is claimed so many new zealand's police haven't ruled out the possibility of more suspects being at large and a warning muslims to stay away from mosques nationwide we have staff around the country ensuring. that everyone has capes safe and there includes. defenders in special tactics groups right across the country being very vigilant and having a presence around wall of their mosques to ensure nothing to fear that their kids the national threat level has been raised from low to high as police politicians on the public come to terms with the worst and most shocking attack they've ever experienced but this attack will be felt most keenly by those from migrant communities we all know a mosque behind me was full of people originally from many different countries this
isn't just new zealand's tragedy it is the world's under thomas al-jazeera christians ok king is live for us in christ church and joins us now kate what is the latest on the investigation. there him release it seems our only early steps in still burning up the editing of the situation. but at least the much that beijing is ongoing they are in the engine of this attack the every inch of rights that an email in it's like to meetings with hearing and what not. in just a few novelist now he's these that they do well doesn't mean that all. people will be treated the injuries people who well let's go of you know who is. also who will win that those children's hospitals but many peoples
who were being treated like a class or two months ago and are stretched now are just going down to the cordon which is just outside the building i'm in a mall jeans outlets runs along because they were armed at the alamo mall was always a weeks old and so the thing carried out well for reasons of what was a mall that dogs were to. believe right about now live. we can. now also now is that we are in the cordon we were getting to live not yet in class or she was still moving in the morning but we're getting to where i got to the realisation that was lonesome to joining the dozens that are well it's almost society on the last indeed it is difficult to imagine how the community them must be feeling off to an attack like this how would you describe the the atmosphere now that i suppose it is just
starting to sink in. tell our disbar that my last words enough. people get in when to bring it means the rule of the we've got is playing at the hands of mother nature but this morning that's because you know they have really gone together in the not so the right but that when it comes to a crime such as this all the people in lisbon need to be there while he is in disbelief that it could happen the people that asked for him to say thank you no. points of us will happen not not just in new zealand i think this was a day that changed the sun we know new zealand is what. we still to the planets are considered to be normal in new zealand simply to think that there is not of these they must be the going on to the surface might take not
a link but then went to the we know that europe was not to the with the state of his mind state in new zealand and i want to this that launches changing the sign of the people were good news in the people who come to new zealand to visit news and want to make means in the fall are among the people who believe the state because it's not an end to the victims of the tech the lackey brings the jews the migrants have moved to new zealand it's a place that they wanted to run for the very reason that it wants to let us live mikes own words mike's point is that people in new zealand know one another and want to learn about our. people need a new zealand mewling we are in some of those moments. very saddened by what's happened and i have to thank you very much kate king bringing us the latest there from christchurch. washed up as a christ church mosques were from several muslim majority countries and the attack
